All that cross-toolchain packaging work had nothing to do with the
release goal of cross-toolchains in the archive? That's what I think I
Only some of it was on cross-toolchain-base (but definitely not none),
as opposed to multiarch builds, for reasons already discussed.

It is one of a very long series of edits over the 10 days after the
where all the sprint attendees tried to get our notes and
recollections into a readable, coherent, document. You did not appear
to take part - I don't know why, but assumed you were busy. I don't
suppose you will believe me, but it was an honest attempt to document
the event. No-one objected to any of it apart from you, now.
There has been a lot of discussion about assuming good faith
recently. A bit less of the 'he is a liar and a counterfeighter' would

So, I think everyone has got the general idea by now that we don't
agree on this matter, and haven't for some time. I suggest that
further dissection of history isn't going to help or entertain anyone,
and we should retire to bug 771070 and discuss the substantive issues
and what to do next.
